MAYVILLE – The Chautauqua County Office of Emergency Services is seeking additional public input on the updated draft of the County’s Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan.
“Public participation in the planning process is critical to the successful development and implementation of the County’s comprehensive strategy to reduce vulnerability to hazards,” said Julius Leone, Director of Chautauqua County Emergency Services.
Hazard mitigation is sustained action taken to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk to human life and property from hazards.
The County’s Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan identifies natural hazards that impact our community such as floods, severe storms, tornadoes, and hazardous materials incidents; identified actions the County and community can take to reduce the impact of those hazards; and establishes a process for implementing the plan.
